Cardi B is making chart and money moves.
The 25-year-old rapper, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, accomplished an unprecedented feat in the billboard chart’s history, July 2, 2018, she became the first female rapper with two No. 1s. Cardi began to first takeover the billboard charts with her debut hit, “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves),” for three weeks beginning Oct. 7, 2017.
Cardi B’s 2nd Hot 100 No. 1:
“Like” is the 1,076th No. 1 in the Hot 100 billboard archives, which dates to the chart’s Aug. 4, 1958 creation.
Real music history is very hard to achieve but thanks to “Bodak Yellow” and now “Like,” Cardi B passes four female rappers (2 of them I consider to be past legendary) who previously topped the tally with one No. 1 apiece: Lauryn Hill, with “Doo Wop (That Thing),” for two weeks in 1998; Lil’ Kim, with “Lady Marmalade,” with Christina Aguilera, Mya and P!nk (five weeks, 2001); Shawnna, as featured on Ludacris’ “Stand Up” (one, 2003); and, Iggy Azalea, with “Fancy,” featuring Charli XCX (seven, 2014).
Two No. 1s From a Debut Album:
“Like” is from Cardi B’s debut album, Invasion of Privacy, which launched atop the Billboard 200 chart dated April 4 and includes “Bodak Yellow.”
Cardi B is the first artist to notch a pair of Billboard Hot 100 No. 1s from a debut album since Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, whose The Heist yielded “Thrift Shop,” featuring Wanz (six weeks at No. 1), and “Can’t Hold Us,” featuring Ray Dalton (five), both in 2013.
